158 pages

This volume is a reprint of the most thorough treatise on pacifism and the separation of church and state from the early era (1866-7) of the Stone-Campbell movement. Drawing on the Old and New Testaments as well as the witness of the early church, Lipscomb makes a strong case for the church's non-involvement in civil government (in contrast with the divine government, which is being demonstrated through the church community). This is the third book in the Library of Radical Christian Discipleship, a collection of works by/about movements in church history that were deeply rooted (the English word radical comes from the Latin radix, meaning root) in their commitment to following the self-denying example of Jesus and the early church in embodying the Gospel as contrast communities in the midst of a world held hostage by sin and death.

Work Description

This volume is a reprint of the most thorough treatise on pacifism and the separation of church and state from the early era (1866-7) of the Stone-Campbell movement. Drawing on the Old and New Testaments as well as the witness of the early church, Lipscomb makes a strong case for the church's non-involvement in civil government (in contrast with the divine government, which is being demonstrated through the church community). This is the third book in the Library of Radical Christian Discipleship, a collection of works by/about movements in church history that were deeply rooted (the English word radical comes from the Latin radix, meaning root) in their commitment to following the self-denying example of Jesus and the early church in embodying the Gospel as contrast communities in the midst of a world held hostage by sin and death.

Excerpts

Human government, the embodied effort of man to rule the world without God, ruled over by "the prince of this world," the devil. Its mission is to execute wrath and vengeance here on earth. Human government bears the same relation to hell as the church bears to heaven.
